Abstract

A method for incoming call notification is disclosed. The method may comprise, when receiving an incoming call, determining voice identification information of the incoming call according to number information of the incoming call, and playing the voice identification information of the incoming call.

Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application is based upon and claims priority to Chinese Patent Application No. 201510111980.7, filed Mar. 13, 2015, the entire contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.

TECHNICAL FIELD

The present disclosure generally relates to communication technologies, and more particularly, to a method and a device for incoming call notification.

BACKGROUND

Nowadays, spam calls have become a public nuisance. In order to prevent such calls, many security products emerge. For example, when a user receives a spam special software may assign a tag such as “telemarketing”, “fraud” and the like to the incoming call, and the tag is uploaded to a cloud end server. When other users receive calls from the same number, the tag may be shown to them to filter such calls.

However, filtering by tags does not apply to all situations in practice, and thus it is important to improve the method to make it more applicable.

SUMMARY

One aspect of the present disclosure is directed to a method for incoming call notification. The method may comprise, when receiving an incoming call, determining voice identification information of the incoming call according to number information of the incoming call, and playing the voice identification information of the incoming call.

Another aspect of the present disclosure is directed to a device for incoming call notification. The device may comprise a processor and a memory for storing instructions executable by the processor. The processor may be configured to, when receiving an incoming call, determine voice identification information of the incoming call according to number information of the incoming call, and play the voice identification information of the incoming call.

Another aspect of the present disclosure is directed to a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium storing instructions that, when executed by a processor of a terminal device, cause the terminal device to perform a method for incoming call notification. The method may comprise, when receiving an incoming call, determining voice identification information of the incoming call according to number information of the incoming call, and playing the voice identification information of the incoming call.

It is to be understood that the foregoing general description and the following detailed description are exemplary and explanatory only, and are not restrictive of the invention, as claimed.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Reference will now be made in detail to exemplary embodiments, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings. The following description refers to the accompanying drawings in which the same numbers in different drawings represent the same or similar elements unless otherwise represented. The implementations set forth in the following description of exemplary embodiments do not represent all implementations consistent with the present disclosure. Instead, they are merely examples of apparatuses and methods consistent with aspects related to the present disclosure as recited in the appended claims.

The terminologies used herein are only for describing particular embodiments but not for limiting the present disclosure. The singular form words “a”, “the”, and “said” used in the present disclosure and append claims are intended to include plural form, unless otherwise clearly stated. Also, it shall be appreciated that the terminology “and/or” used herein refers to any or all combinations of one or more listed related items.

It shall be appreciated that although the present disclosure uses terminologies “first”, “second”, and “third” and the like to describe various information, the information shall not be limited by these terminologies. Using these terminologies is only for distinguishing information of the same type. For example, without departing from the scope of the present disclosure, the first information may be referred to as the second information, and similarly, the second information may be referred to as the first information. Depending on the context, the terminology “if” used herein may be interpreted as “when” or “in response to determining that”.

In many scenarios, it is inconvenient for a user to look at a mobile phone screen, for example, when the user is driving a car and wearing a Bluetooth earphone. Even if an incoming call received is tagged as a spam call at a cloud end, the user may not see tag information of this incoming call, because the user may not see the screen of the mobile phone. Thus, the user may still answer this spam call.

In view of the above, the present disclosure proposes a method for incoming call notification. By this method, a voice play technology can be integrated with the incoming call identification technology. When an incoming call is received, voice identification information of the incoming call can be determined according to number information of the incoming call, and the voice identification information of the incoming call can be played. Thus, when the voice identification information carries the tag information corresponding to the number of the incoming call, a user may be informed of the tag even when the user cannot see the phone screen.

FIG. 1 is a flowchart illustrating a method 100 for incoming call notification, according to an exemplary embodiment. The method 100 can be performed by a terminal device and can include the following steps.

At step 101, voice identification information of a received incoming call is determined according to number information of the incoming call.

At step 102, the voice identification information is played.

In some exemplary embodiments, the terminal device may be a smart phone or a smart terminal device having a calling function. The technical solutions of the present disclosure described below in detail use the smart phone as an example. When the smart phone receives an incoming call, a phone call service on the smart phone can extract the number of the incoming call, locally perform user identification on the extracted number, and determine the voice identification information of the incoming call according to the user identification result.

When the phone call service on the smart phone performs user identification on the number of the incoming call, the number may be inquired respectively in a local address book, a yellow page database, and an identification tag database at a server end. When the number of the incoming call is inquired in the local address book, matching between the number and the local address book may be performed. If the number of the incoming call matches a contact in the local address book, the incoming call can be regarded as a normal incoming call, and basic information of the contact may be directly read out from the address book and may be displayed on the calling interface for the user. If the smart phone starts a cloud end address book function and the local address hook has been uploaded into the server end in advance, the above procedure for matching the number of the incoming call with the local address book may be performed at the cloud end server via networks.

If the number of the incoming call does not match any contact in the local address book, the incoming call can be regarded as an unknown incoming call. For an unknown incoming call, if the smart phone is locally installed with a yellow page database, the smart phone may further inquire contact information in the local yellow page database to determine whether the unknown incoming call's number is in the yellow page database. For example, the yellow page database usually includes commonly used public service numbers (such as service numbers of mobile operators, banks, large enterprises and organizations), the numbers of merchants which have passed real-name authentication, and the like. If the unknown incoming call's number is in the yellow page database, corresponding contact information may be directly read out from the yellow page database and may be displayed on the calling interface for the user. If the smart phone is not locally installed with the yellow page database, the above procedure for inquiring contact information in the yellow page database may be performed, via networks, at a server end installed with the yellow page database. In one embodiment, if the phone call service on the smart phone inquires the extracted number of the incoming call in the local address book and the yellow page database, and no contact information corresponding to the number is found, further steps are performed to determine whether the number of the incoming call carries an identification tag.

When determining whether the number of the incoming call carries the identification tag, an inquiry request carrying the number may be sent to a server end. After receiving the inquiry request, the server end may inquire in a local identification tag database to determine whether the number has been tagged by other users. If the number has been tagged by other users, the server end may return the tag to the smart phone as an inquiry result. The server end may be implemented as a security center providing security service for a user, and the security center may be a server, a server cluster, or a cloud platform.

When the smart phone receives the inquiry result returned by the server end, the smart phone may parse/analyze the inquiry result. If the inquiry result carries an identification tag, the phone call service of the smart phone determine that the number of the incoming call has been tagged by other users, and the number of the incoming call carries the identification tag. The identification tag database may be locally installed on the terminal device. For example, the terminal device may synchronize with the identification tag database of the server end. When no contact information of the number of the incoming call is found from the local address book and the yellow page database, the terminal device may further inquire from the locally synchronized identification tag database to determine whether the number of the incoming call carries an identification tag.

In one embodiment, when inquiries are respectively performed in the local address book, the yellow page database, and the identification tag database for the extracted number of the incoming call, and the number is successfully identified, voice identification information of the incoming call may be determined according to the identification result, and the determined voice identification information may be played. The voice identification information of the incoming call may be classified into different types in advance.

In some exemplary embodiments, the voice identification information can be played as voice prompt information. If the number of the incoming call matches a contact in a local address book, the voice prompt information (i.e., notification) of the incoming call can be determined to be first voice prompt information. The first voice prompt information may include contact information from the local address book. For example, after locally performing inquiries in the local address book for the extracted number of the incoming call, and if the number of the incoming call matches a contact in the local address book, the information of the contact may be directly read out from the local address hook, and a voice message “xxx is calling you” may be played.

If the number of the incoming call is in the yellow page database, the voice prompt information of the incoming call can be determined to be second voice prompt information. The second voice identification information may include the yellow page information of the number information. For example, if the number is in the local yellow page database, the information of the contact may be directly read out from the yellow page database, and a voice message “xxx company is calling you” may be played.

If the number of the incoming call does not match any contact information in the local address book and the yellow page database, and if it is found that the number corresponds to an identification tag by performing inquiries in the identification tag database, the voice prompt information of the incoming call can be determined to be third voice prompt information. The third voice prompt information may include the identification tag information. For example, if the number of the incoming call is 13100000000, and the identification tag of the number of the incoming call is “telemarketing”, a voice message “call received from 13100000000 and could be telemarketing” can be played.

In some exemplary embodiments, if no contact information is found after performing inquiries in the local address book, the yellow page database, and the identification tag database for the number of the incoming call, the voice prompt information of the incoming call can be determined to be fourth voice prompt information. The fourth voice prompt information may only include the number information of the incoming call. For example, if the number of the incoming call is 13100000000, and if no contact information is found after performing inquiries in the local address book, the yellow page database, and the identification tag database, a voice message “13100000000 is calling you” may be played.

In one embodiment, when playing the voice identification information, the voice identification information may be first converted into a voice message, and the converted voice message may be played via a local audio output device (for example, a speaker or a telephone receiver in a smart phone). Alternatively, the converted voice message may be transmitted to an audio output peripheral (for example a Bluetooth earphone) via a pre-established audio path. Thus, when it is inconvenient for the user to view the screen of the mobile phone, and if the voice identification information includes the identification tag of the number of the incoming call, the identification tag may still be obtained.

In some exemplary embodiments, if the audio output peripheral is a Bluetooth earphone, and when transmitting media audio (STREAM_MEDIA) of the voice play information to the Bluetooth earphone, an audio path may need to be established between the Bluetooth earphone and the smart phone. The audio path between the Bluetooth earphone and the smart phone may be one of an Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) path or a Synchronous Connection Oriented link (SCO) path.

The A2DP path may be applied in media audio transmission between Bluetooth devices and may have good audio effects. The transmission of the media audio of the voice play information via the A2DP path may be implemented by changing the audio routing of the Bluetooth in the original system of a smart phone into an A2DP path. However, since the original system of the smart phone needs to be changed, the implementation cost can be relatively high. The SCO path may be applied in call audio transmission between Bluetooth devices. The transmission of the media audio of the voice play information via the SCO path may be implemented by changing the media audio into call audio (STREAM_CALL). The transmission of media audio of the voice play information via the SCO path can be simple but may have degraded audio effects than the A2DP path.

In exemplary embodiments consistent with this disclosure, the voice play technology can be integrated with the incoming call identification technology. When an incoming call is received, voice identification information of the incoming call can be determined according to number information of the incoming call, and the voice identification information of the incoming call can be played. Thus, when the voice identification information carries the identification tag information corresponding to the number information of the incoming call, a user may obtain the identification tag even when it is inconvenient for the user to view the screen of a mobile phone.

FIG. 2 is a flowchart illustrating a method 200 for incoming call notification, according to an exemplary embodiment. The method 200 can be performed by a terminal device and can include the following steps.

At step 201, contact information is inquired according to number information of an incoming call. If contact information corresponding to the number information of the incoming call is found, voice prompt information of the incoming call can be determined to be first voice prompt information. The first voice prompt information may include the contact information corresponding to the number of the incoming call.

At step 202, if no contact information corresponding to the number of the incoming call is found, yellow page information can be inquired according to the number information of the incoming call. If yellow page information corresponding to the number information of the incoming call is found, the voice prompt information of the incoming call can be determined to be second voice prompt information. The second voice prompt information may include the yellow page information corresponding to the number information of the incoming call.

At step 203, if no yellow page information corresponding to the number information of the incoming call is found, identification tag information can be inquired according to the number information of the incoming call. If identification tag information corresponding to the number information of the incoming call is found, the voice prompt information of the incoming call can be determined to the third voice prompt information. The third voice prompt information may include the identification tag information corresponding to the number information of the incoming call.

At step 204, the determined voice prompt information of the incoming call is played.

In some exemplary embodiments, the terminal device may be a smart phone or a smart terminal device having a calling function. The technical solutions of the present disclosure described below in detail use the smart phone as an example.

When the smart phone receives an incoming call, the phone call service on the smart phone can extract the number of the incoming call, locally perform user identification on the extracted number, and determine voice identification information of the incoming call according to the user identification result.

When the phone call service on the smart phone performs user identification on the number of the incoming call, the number may be inquired respectively in a local address book, a yellow page database, and an identification tag database at a server end. When the number of the incoming call is inquired in the local address book, matching between the number and the local address book may be performed. If the number of the incoming call matches a contact in the local address book, the incoming call can be regarded as a normal incoming call, and the basic information of the contact may be directly read out from the address hook and may be displayed on the calling interface for the user. If the smart phone starts a cloud end address book function and the local address book has been uploaded into the server end in advance, the above procedure for matching the number of the incoming call with the local address book may be performed at the cloud end server via networks.

If the number of the incoming call does not match any contact in the local address hook, the incoming call can be regarded as an unknown incoming call. For an unknown incoming call, if the smart phone is locally installed with a yellow page database, the smart phone may further inquire the contact information in the local yellow page database to determine whether the unknown incoming call's number is in the yellow page database. For example, the yellow page database usually includes commonly used public service numbers (such as service numbers of mobile operators, banks, large enterprises and organizations), the numbers of merchants passed real-name authentication, and the like. If the unknown incoming call's number is in the yellow page database, corresponding contact information may be directly read out from the yellow page database and may be displayed on the calling interface for the user. If the smart phone is not locally installed with the yellow page database, the above procedure for inquiring contact information in the local yellow page database may be performed, via networks, at a server end installed with the yellow page database. In one embodiment, if the phone call service on the smart phone inquires the extracted number of the incoming call in the local address book and the yellow page database, and no contact information corresponding to the number is found, further steps are performed to determine whether the number of the incoming call carries an identification tag.

When determining whether the number of the incoming call carries the identification tag, an inquiry request carrying the number may be sent to a server end. After receiving the inquiry request, the server end may inquire in a local identification tag database to determine whether the number has been tagged by other users. If the number has been tagged by other users, the server end may return the tag to the smart phone as an inquiry result. The server end may be implemented as a security center providing security service for a user, and the security center may be a server, a server cluster, or a cloud platform.

When the smart phone receives the inquiry result returned by the server end, the smart phone may parse/analyze the inquiry result. If the inquiry result carries an identification tag, the phone call service of the smart phone may determine that the number of the incoming call has been tagged by other users, and the number of the incoming call carries the identification tag. The identification tag database may be locally installed on the terminal device. For example, the terminal device may synchronize with the identification tag database of the server end. When no contact information of the number of the incoming call is found from the local address book and the yellow page database, the terminal device may further inquire from the locally synchronized identification tag database to determine whether the number of the incoming call carries an identification tag.

In one embodiment, when inquiries are respectively performed in the local address book, the yellow page database, and the identification tag database for the extracted number of the incoming call, and the number is successfully identified, the voice identification information of the incoming call may be determined according to the identification result, and the determined voice identification information may be played. The voice identification information of the incoming call may be classified into different types in advance.

In some exemplary embodiments, the voice identification information may be played as voice prompt information. If the number of the incoming call matches a contact in a local address book, the voice prompt information (i.e., notification) of the incoming call can be determined to the first voice prompt information. The first voice prompt information may include contact information from the local address book. For example, after locally performing inquiries in the local address book for the extracted number of the incoming call, and if the number of the incoming call matches with a contact in the local address hook, the information of the contact may be directly read out from the local address book, and a voice message “xxx is calling you” may be played.

If the number of the incoming call is in the yellow page database, the voice prompt information of the incoming call can be determined to be second voice prompt information. The second voice identification information may include the yellow page information of the number information. For example, if the number is in the local yellow page database, the information of the contact may be directly read out from the yellow page database, and a voice message “xxx company is calling you” may be.

If the number of the incoming call does not match any contact information in the local, address hook and the yellow page database, and if it is found that the number corresponds to an identification tag by performing inquiries in the identification tag database, the voice prompt information of the incoming, call can be determined to be third voice prompt information. The third voice prompt information may include the identification tag information. For example, if the number of the incoming call is 13100000000, and the identification tag of the number of the incoming call is “telemarketing”, a voice message “call received from 13100000000 and could be telemarketing” can be played.

In some exemplary embodiments, if no contact information is found after performing inquiries in the local address hook, the yellow page database, and the identification tag database for the number of the incoming call, the voice prompt information of the incoming call can be determined to be fourth voice prompt information. The fourth voice prompt information may only include the number information of the incoming call. For example, if the number of the incoming call is 13100000000, and if no contact information is found after performing inquiries in the local address hook, the yellow page database, and the identification tag database, a voice message “13100000000 is calling you” may be played.

In one embodiment, when playing the voice identification information, the voice identification information may be first converted into a voice message, and the converted voice message may be played via a local audio output device (for example, a speaker or a telephone receiver in a smart phone). Alternatively, the converted voice message may be transmitted to an audio output peripheral (for example a Bluetooth earphone) via a pre-established audio path. Thus, when it is inconvenient for the user to view the screen of the mobile phone, and if the voice identification information includes the identification tag of the number of the incoming call, the identification tag may still be obtained.

In some exemplary embodiments, if the audio output peripheral is a Bluetooth earphone, and when transmitting media audio (STREAK_MEDIA) of the voice play information to the Bluetooth earphone, an audio path may need to be established between the Bluetooth earphone and the smart phone. The audio path between the Bluetooth earphone and the smart phone may be one of an Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) path or a Synchronous Connection Oriented link (SCO) path.

The A2DP path may be applied in media audio transmission between Bluetooth devices and may have good audio effects. The transmission of the media audio of the voice play information via the A2DP path may be implemented by changing the audio routing of the Bluetooth in the original system of a smart phone into an A2DP path. However, since the original system of the smart phone needs to be changed, the implementation cost can be relatively high. The SCO path may be applied in call audio transmission between Bluetooth devices. The transmission of the media audio of the voice play information via the SCO path may be implemented by changing the media audio into call audio (STREAM_CALL). The transmission of media audio of the voice play information via the SCO path can be simple but may have degraded audio effects than the A2DP path.

In exemplary embodiments consistent with this disclosure, the voice play technology can be integrated with the incoming call identification technology. When an incoming call is received, voice identification information of the incoming call can be determined according to number information of the incoming call, and the voice identification information of the incoming call can be played. Thus, when the voice identification information carries the identification tag information corresponding to the number information of the incoming call, a user may obtain the identification tag even when it is inconvenient for the user to view the screen of a mobile phone.

Consistent with the embodiments described above, the present disclosure further provides exemplary embodiments of devices that perform the methods for incoming call notification.
